This heating mat is a waste of money. It does not add much additional heat at all. You are much better off spending a few more dollars and getting something that will add heat.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MrsCorbett The mat barely got warm at all and ended up being completely useless. Ended up throwing it out. Would not recommend this product at all. Save your money and go with something better.

by Kenya7312 It works, more or less.
Easy of Assembly:
The heating pad was very easy to use, just plug it in essentially. As suggested, I used tape at first to find a good place to put it before sticking it on there permanently.
Does it work?
Yes, it heats up a lot hotter then I actually expected! The problem is my crabs won't go near it! At first I put it under my tank and it easily heated up the patch of sand it was under (and only that patch). My crabs pretty much avoided it. I moved it to the side where it is currently and my crabs won't sleep in their hide anymore. It doesn't really heat my tank at all, just the glass and the air inside the hide. I plan to move things around next cleaning day and see what happens. The adhesive was supposed to be strong and it was warned it might be difficult to remove and leave those sticky marks. It sticks, but is easily (and often by accident..) removed.
I think it can be useful for cold houses in need of some heat, but a heat lamp would work much better. Still it does work as advertised so I have to say I recommend it.

The mat barely got warm and didn't warm the inside of the tank at all. Not worth the 15$$
